well hued home
As inspiration for change, the desire for an abundance of colour & whimsy breathes new life to this 10,000 sq ft Georgian style residence.
The client’s curiosity for contemporary art and design, on display in the house, showcases their eclectic interests. The impressive living room installation piece depicting pagoda roof structures, created entirely of dressmaker’s buttons, exemplifies the clients love of whimsy spiked with a dose of materiality, while a massive wood sculpture in the front hall shows their interest in the union of contemporary art with practical design. Many of the art pieces throughout the house show this fascination with the merging of whimsical themes with practical application.
“THE ASK: A HOME FULL OF COLOUR, LIFE AND WHIMSY FOR A GROWING FAMILY… A CHALLENGE FOR A ‘SERIOUS’ DESIGN FIRM SUCH AS OURS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME SO MUCH FUN!”
— Albert Limshue
The result is a home fit for family fun and entertainment for all that pass beyond its welcoming threshold. As the children grow and mature so also will the furnishings & art which enliven the spaces transform and evolve.
